Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,959

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 17, 2012

It's the Shock Trooper, 2012 style!  The sculpt is thinner, the deco is crisp, but it lacks some of the damage from before.  I like it. And thankfully, you can probably find it out.  Want to know more?

The Blue R4-Series Astromech Droid is like R2-D2 with a pointier head.  Well, part of it anyway. Big thanks to our pal Shannon for his assistance in making sure this guy got here where he belongs.  Was it worth it?

This Luke Skywalker in his Bespin outfit is one of my favorite figures of the year.  Also, all time.  It's wonderful.  Crisp lines in his outfit are remarkable.  A working holster is awesome.  Yellow hair is oh-so-retro.  He can stand, sit, and requires little futzing to get him to behave as a good toy should.  Hasbro, you've done well in my book!

It's Darth Maul, as seen on TV and likely at a Target near you.  With a nifty spinning mechanism integrated into the weapon (rather than the figure) it's a rather clever new take on an existing outfit.  Is it worth shelling out for?

This AT-ST Driver was released a few months ago and is probably still at a Kmart near you. (That is, if there's a Kmart near you.)  It's based on the 2010 Target-exclusive release, but with Return of the Jedi-themed decoration and a sweller helmet.   If they were cheaper, I'd buy more.

It's CorpseyEr, Nanta!  This Ewok is best known as one of the dead Ewoks, and now he can be bought as a plastic exclusive at the Toys R Us.  Assuming they still have any.  You can tell where they were by the piles of unsold Yavin Pilot sets.  (Those are good too.)  Where was I?

Another Star Tours droid!  It's not orange, so this Red R3-Series Astromech Droid is different than the droid in the Legacy line a few years ago.  See the silver box around the black eye? That's how you can tell.

Recently released (and really the only animated toys of the season), Clone Trooper Boost is part of the just-released and also just-marked down to $15.11  As a redeco, you know what to expect... but at least it's a neat redeco and one that's priced to move right now.  Should you get it?

It's Ahsoka Tano, this time released with creepy brain worms.  Because it's the 201X-es, there are zombies in everything, even Star Wars.  This figure set became a de facto closeout exclusive and may be at a store near you on the cheap.  You'll have to go look.  But should you make the effort?

This Darth Maul was one of a few new sculpts cranked out this year, and as luck would have it I'm spying tons of these in Walmart 8-packs around town all of a sudden. It's a fun figure, and is a gem as 1/8 of a $25 set.

This version of Ki-Adi-Mundi comes from a 2008 Battle Pack which many fans missed. It didn't get very good distribution, but it's not too expensive and it's a wonderful set full of robots and clones.  How can you go wrong?

Let's finish up this trilogy of purple astromech droids while I listen to Freezepop and post the R4-Series Astromech Droid in this lovely coloring.  You'll like it.  Trust me.  Mace Windu would, too.

It looks like it belongs to Mace Windu, but the Purple R6-Series Astromech Droid is one of many robots you can build at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando.  Well, maybe, getting the pieces you want is something of a trick.

Ahh, the Purple R3-Series Astromech Droid.  This Orlando exclusive is a pain in the next to get, but pretty neat because of the crystal-clear colorless dome and the purple detailing.  Should you get one?

Behold, the best-ever Watto action figure on the market today!  The price isn't bad, the deco is better than the 1999 version, plus he has a swell companion figure.  Do you know which one this is?  You will!
